Two And A Half Men: Latest Rumors & 9th Season Premier Date

The new Two and a Half Men airs the first episode of its ninth season on September 19.  The season premiere is unofficially reported by several TV watchdogs and public radio stations to be aired as a two part episode to help fans get used to Uncle Charlie’s untimely demise, and to introduce Ashton Kutcher’s character — Walden Schmidt – a multi-billionaire with a broken heart.

CBS’ Entertainment Nina Tassler would not confirm or deny reports that the new season begins with the death and funeral of Sheen’s character, Charlie Harper.  “The mystery is part of the marketing,” she said.

Lots of information about that first show is slipping through the cracks of what Nina Tassler insists is an iron clad secret and denies, or is non-committal, when asked about how the new version of the sitcom will begin.

Tassler is firm that the way that Sheen is written out of the show is a surprise and that the rumors are just rumors and not valid information.

During a press conference on Wednesday, she did confirm the much-anticipated cast change for TV’s biggest sitcom.  Kutcher, of course, will fill the void left by Charlie Sheen who dramatically left the show in the past season.

In addition, A CBS exec confirmed that Kutcher’s character is named Walden Schmidt, but insisted that this character bears no family connection to Charlie’s brother and nephew, played by Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones, who are continuing stars in the new season.

Tassler is quoted as saying “The show will be as irreverent as it has ever been. Our Program Practices people are already on high alert.”

I'm a regular person who is passionate about writing... any kind of writing. I used to write short stories as a child. That brought me to a 35 year career as a business writer and instructional designer and developer as well as a developer of user guides, manuals, and instructional classroom aids for corporate trainees. Upon retirement, I tackled the first item on my bucket list -- to write a novel. It took many months of thought, planning, outlining, and ultimately sitting at the keyboard for months but finally, I did write my novel. So now I'm a regular person and retiree who has reinvented herself as a published author of fiction! I love researching everything and anything to satisfy many facets of my very curious personality, so it was only natural that I advance that love of research into reporting on the happenings of the day, weeks and months as to what's new on the shopping lists of merchandise buyers for fashion, and technology. Why not add to that, entertainment and the most layered and complex world of music. I love it all! I hope you'll love some of it :()
